are behind them. and there's no question that people are behind decisive action now. >> congressman courtney, you sat in that room last night and i know what it is to be among people that have lost something for no reason. but i couldn't imagine 20 caskets with 4-year-olds to 10 years old. i went through that one time this year with a 4-year-old. i mean, when americans are seeing children being buried, how does any of us walk away without feeling compelled to do something, no matter how cynical or no matter how much we've given up? >> when the president did the role call of the children's names and the reaction in the room, i've been to a number of funerals in my day, as well, reverend. and i've never experienced anything as raw and just agonizing as listening to the response that was happening, again, all over that auditorium. you know, i was telling john this morning, i was driving through the back roads in connecticut this morning on the way to the airport and i drove by a number of schools in my district. and at every single one of them, there was a police cruiser stationed outside the e
democrat in the house. made it clear the time for action is now. >> i think there's a better chance to do that now than ever. not that one child's life is more important than another person's life, but the volume, the impact of this that every child can feel vulnerable. the fact there's been so many events in close proximity and timewise to each other that this is almost a tipping point. >> it is a tipping point. democrats are looking to push a bill this week that would ban high-capacity magazines. like those used in newtown. it's not just the white house. it's not just congress. today there's major news out of michigan where the republican governor rick snyder has vetoed legislation that would allow concealed weapons in churches and schools and day care centers. new polls show support for stricter gun control is at a ten-year high. the company that owns the gun maker that produced the rifle used in last week's massacre plans to sell it. calling the shooting a quote, water shed event. and dick sporting goods has suspend the sale of modern sporting rifles in all of their change. this is ch
of the national action network and senior pastor of the historic king solomon baptist church in detroit. thank you, all three for joining me tonight. >> great to be with you. >> thank you. >> congressman peters, let me start with you. the governor snyder has signed this bill. now, what's the next step? >> this is absolutely outrageous. what we've seen in the last hours. compete about face from a governor who said this should not be part of the agenda. and to do this without any hearings. then what i think is particularly outrageous. the next step is we could have gone to a referendum. put it on the ballot for the voters to make a decision. particularly in a state like michigan which has been the center of the labor movement from the very beginning. instead they did a very tricky maneuv maneuver. they put a small appropriation on that bill. you can't go to a referendum. we have democrats that would be joining the state house. they weren't going to pass it in the new legislature, so they jammed it through here and put something in to make it difficult to have a referendum. it is certainly not over.
officials is danger. now is the time to take action against this. the tifl v teaeachers and civil communities are planning rallies against it. this cannot become a national trend. joining me now is randy weingarten, president of the american federation of teempers and tameka mall ri. thank you both for joining me font. >> thank you, reverend. >> thanks. >> this is really nuts. >> brandy, i mean, teachers with loaded guns? what do you think? >> so, look. some of these very same states have strict teachers rights to actually have a voice in a classroom. have any latitude over what they do with students, have any latitude over their conditions at work. but, yet, they are rushing to arm teachers and rushing to arm schools. this is really dangerous, irresponsible. what we need -- and a huge diversion from what's going on. we actually need to make kids safer. we actually need to take guns away from kids. we've had 34,000 kids injured this last year because of guns. almost 6,000 kids died at the hands of guns. what we need to do is make schools into safe san chew wares for kids. nay're r

cuts right now. in fact, the senate has already passed a bill doing exactly this. all we need is action from the house. and i've got the pen ready to sign the bill right away. >> if we can get a few house republicans to agree, i'll sign this bill as soon as congress sends it my way. i've got to repeat. i've got a pen. >> that's the choice now on the table. the president's plan that gives tax relief to 98% of americans of the republicans plan to help the rich while gutting the safety net. it's all a question of numbers. and here's a number for you. the number 11. that's the approval rate of boehner's congress. here's another number. 57. that's the president's approval rating. anyone want to guess who has the upper hand in this fight? >> joining me now is congressman emanuel and jane walsh and an msnbc analyst. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> good to be with you. >> thanks, reverend. >> congressman cleaver, what is going on here. did speaker boehner not know we just had an election over this and that they lost? >> no. reverend, this is amazing: it's one of these situation
for the conservative american majority action says, "speaker boehner needs to resign. he has no support among the american people. negotiating in secret and losing in public is a bad combo. good argument for a new speaker. eric ericson, one of the first on the right to call for boehner to be fired is celebrating boehner's plan b receipt. victory for now. house goes home. and here's what mark levin said just hours before boehner admitted he didn't have the votes for plan b. >> i'm so sick and tire e ed of being told boehner was delt a bad hand. if the man's not up to the job, get the hell out of the way. we delivered him to the house of representatives. he's speaker and he whines. get the hell off the stage, boehner. >> get off the stage. and he's a republican? ouch. but, look, speaker boehner rode the tea party wave as long as he could. now, it's coming back to haunt him and his party. when the dust settles, what will it mean for the rest of us. joining me now, president and ceo of latino and an msnbc contributor and ryan grim. ryan, let me go to you first. from the start, republicans took an
the proper course of action with regard to immigration, i hope we do so with a benevolent spirit and keep in mind the contribution of immigrants. >> and that speech was last night, not today. but a benevolent spirit. they seem to be trying to move and whether this image is for real. >> you have to give bush credit. he tried to pass immigration in 2004 and no one wanted to go near him this election cycle. it shows the fact that he's speaking out, the lack of leadership, reince priebus, i guarantee he did not pick up the phone and say, let's build on it, this makes us look bad. that's the problem. there is a void of leadership altogether and it's clear when you see bush as the ring leader. >> so you think he could have advised romney? >> better than sununu. >> much better than sununu. >> absolutely. >> abby huntsman and james peterson, thank you for your time tonight. >> thanks, rev. >>> coming up, the bully man isç back. rate until you hear the latest theory about president obama winning the election. >>> and she's here. she's here. with me in the studio. she is the one and only rosie per
nine as i listened to the argument on the affirmative action, a case heard about a month ago. when i look at that bench and i see judges there, do you think that they go with the arc of the future? i mean, we are talking about scalia and clarence thomas, some judges that could be scary. >> yes, they could be scary and they very well might be scary. but the key justice in all of this is going to be justice kennedy. he is the one who eloquently wrote in the texas case, saying that the dignity of guy men and lesbians should not be trampled upon by the federal government and it was that ruling that set off justice scalia who said in 2003 that because of what the majority wrote in that opinion, setting it up for legalization of same-sex marriage. what could happen here, the windsor versus the united states case, keep in mind, edith windsor is legally married. she was legally married in canada. she lives in new york for marriage equality where it's legal. her suit against the united states isn't asking to be legally married. it's to have the federal government recognize her legal marriage.
